Animal Infestation in Your Home?

2/12/2021 (Permalink)

Believe it or not, SERVPRO does deal with several animal infestation during the winter months. While some animals hibernate during the cold, many animals do not. Your warm and cozy home is what these animals are looking for to survive the winter.

When animals get into your property, they can be destructive, disruptive and dangerous. This can cause serious damage to your property and put your safety at risk.

Raccoons, bats and mice are the worst when it comes to invading a warm home. These animals are sneaky and can squeeze into the smallest openings of your home. They tend to live in your walls, attic, basement and any small place where they can be warm.

Chewed boxes in your attic or basement, chewed wires or framing, droppings and scratching are all signs that infestation is occurring in your home.

These unwanted tenants can gnaw on electrical wires and turn on appliances. This could lead to potential fire and water damage in your home. We have responded to several homes suffering from water and fire damage due to infestation such as electrical fires and flooding. Although we do cleanup and restoration services for these events, they can be prevented. For more information, call 586-480-2400.
